Thermal and Condensation Simulation
We are getting more and more interest in the Cradle CFD products from MSC Software, particularly scSTREAM due to its ease of use and powerful capabilities around flow, thermal and condensation simulation which make it ideal for engineers working in the battery charging arena.
A common use of Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) is in the design of fans and pumps. This short video demonstration shows how simple it is to set up a centrifugal fan model in scFLOW.
In this example we are looking to predict the flowrate throughput for a given fan speed, which is easily done by following steps in the wizard driven interface.
Next generation CFD tool
scFLOW from MSC Software is a state-of the art Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) package which uses a polyhedral mesh to solve some very complex problems with short run-times that have surprised long term users of other CFD packages.
scSTREAM is one of the newest products in the MSC Software portfolio.
It aims to make the job of simulating fluid flow and heat transfer easy and accessible to more Engineers than traditional Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) packages.
The movie below shows a quick demonstration of its use for a simple thermal assessment of a small electronics package.
